Nearly everything is ready for this year’s Blackpool Pride Festival in the Winter Gardens.

There are several areas and stages to choose from.

These include an outside stage, sponsored by the Houndshill Shopping Centre, a main stage where, among others, Reggie and Bollie, S Club and Kieran Richardson from Hollyoaks will appear.

There is also a women’s area with live entertainment and an Over 18’s area with many adult performers.

There is also a youth and family area, sponsored by the Sandcastle Waterpark, which includes this year’s Pride’s Got Talent!

Additionally, there are more than 20 commercial stalls and 40 community and charity stalls, all providing a wide range of LGBT 
merchandise.

The parade starts at the Sandcastle Waterpark on the Promenade near the Pleasure Beach at 11 am on Saturday.

The procession will make its way along the Promenade before heading up towards St. John’s Square in front of the Winter Gardens where the opening ceremony will take place.
